Following the Quest


Devotion:  1 Corinthians 11:1

“To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
And to run where
the brave dare not go
To right the unrightable wrong
And to love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star
This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far
To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march,
march into hell
For that heavenly cause
And I know
If I’ll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart
Will lie peaceful and calm
When I’m laid to my rest
And the world will be
better for this
That one man, scorned
and covered with scars,
Still strove with his last
ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable,
the unreachable,
The unreachable star
And I’ll always dream
The impossible dream
Yes, and I’ll reach
The unreachable star”

The Impossible Dream (The Quest)” is a popular song composed by Mitch Leigh, with lyrics written by Joe Darion

Although this song was not meant to be a spiritual song, there are many spiritual implications.

     In God’s Word we are told:

  •    to keep fighting the good fight.
  •    We do not sorrow as those who have no hope.
  •    Run the race in such a way as to win the prize.
  •    Think on what is right.
  •    Think on what is pure and lovely.
  •    Jesus provides rest for the weary.
  •    Fight for what is right and then follow the right path.
  •    Jesus marched into hell for a heavenly cause.
  •    Do not be anxious for anything.
  •    Jesus provides peace that passes all understanding.
  •    Jesus was scorned and covered with scars.
  •    Jesus was called the Star of David.
  •    Things impossible with man are possible with God.                                                                                                                         My dear reader; if your quest seems impossible; cast your cares upon the Lord, for He cares for you.  He’s got you and He’s got the most impossible parts of your life.  He will accomplish what concerns you.

Prayer in Motion:

Jesus, help me to accomplish what You’ve called me to do.  It may seem totally impossible to me, but You are the God of the impossible.  I believe You will accomplish what concerns me  I love You Lord!  It’s in Your Name I offer up this prayer.  Amen
